delayed by a year.  but it's coming this month.

 

 

 

‘Friends: The Reunion’ Special Gets Premiere Date, Teaser Trailer On HBO Max; Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Kit Harington Among Guests

 

https://ca.news.yaho...-170032841.html

 

 

 

 

A slew of A-list celebrity guests will appear on the special including David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Elliott Gould, Kit Harington, Larry Hankin, Mindy Kaling, Thomas Lennon, Christina Pickles, Tom Selleck, James Michael Tyler, Maggie Wheeler, Reese Witherspoon and Malala Yousafzai.

well it wasn't "hated". 

 

but nobody is really talking about it at the water cooler this morning.  not trending on twitter.

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke
Your love life's DOA
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year, but
I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)
You're still in bed at ten
And work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast
So far, things are going great
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world has brought
You down to your knees that
I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)
No one could ever know me
No one could ever see me
Seems you're the only one who knows
What it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with
Even at my worst, I'm best with you, yeah
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year
I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

Although I did not watch many episodes of this show, one episode that I did had what I think was one of the funnier moments in 90/00s sitcom history (at least to me).

Joey and Rachel are sailing/on a boat.

Joey:
Look at this clown. Just 'cause he got a bigger boat, he thinks he can take up the whole river. Get out of the way, jackass! Who names their boat Coast Guard, anyway?

Rachel:
That is the Coast Guard.

Joey:
What are they doing out here? The coast is way over there.

Joey Tribbiani : Hey why can't we use the same toothbrush, but we can use the same soap?

Chandler Bing : Because soap is soap. It's self cleaning.

Joey Tribbiani : Alright, well next time you take a shower, think about the last thing that I wash and the first thing you wash.

I think it was because of that episode that I switched to the pump soap.

it's rumoured the 6-person cast were paid $2.5M each for the appearance.

 

that's not bad money.

 

if it worked, will we see a Seinfeld reunion? yes, i know we already saw one on curb.

 

cheers - seinfeld - friends - frasier - will & grace (from 1982 to 2005!) were a very good run for NBC on Thursday nights.  hill street blues - LA Law - ER rounded out the night.

https://www.cnn.com/...-max/index.html

 

 

The reunion show was a big success in the UK, where it aired on Sky One. The series, which was came from producers including James Corden and Ben Winston’s Fulwell 73, drew over 5M viewers for the Comcast-owned network.

 

Much like the fact that Joey doesn’t share food, HBO Max, which ordered the special, doesn’t share ratings so we may never know how it did in the U.S. in comparison.

 

Over four viewings, across live, recorded and downloads, the series was watched by 5.3M in the UK. This was Sky’s most watched show in the last two years and second only to the final series of Game of Thrones for the biggest audience ever across Sky’s portfolio of channels.

 

Friends previously aired on Channel 4 in the UK during its ten year run.

 

The reunion show’s May 27 UK launch was Sky One’s highest rating since at least 2006, when the earliest records are available, and it comfortably beat An Idiot Abroad, the network’s previous highest rater in 2011.
